They came into the game shorthanded on the offensive line, and they left without two of their most important offensive players: running back Ty Montgomery and receiver Davante Adams. The request stemmed from what Rodgers called “a fantastic meeting” among players, discussing a wide range of topics he chose to keep private. When Rodgers and the Packers capitalized shortly thereafter, the Bears faced a double-digit deficit for the seventh time in their last eight regular-season games. The fumble was credited to Glennon – he leads the National Football League with five (three of them lost) this season.
Aaron Rodgers had it going on Thursday night, connecting on four touchdown passes in the game.
To put things simply, Whitehair has got to do an effective job of getting the ball to Mike Glennon in this game. He’s got a little to ponder the decision with the Bears now off until October 9, when they face the Minnesota Vikings.
The Packers converted the turnover as Rodgers tossed his fourth touchdown pass of the night, an 8-yarder to Nelson, making it 35-7 early in the fourth quarter.
But the two reasons for playing him were to see whether he could be your winning quarterback – which now looks unlikely – and because the fact that he was more National Football League ready than your rookie gave you a better chance to develop the other youngsters around him, and that’s not happening. Jordan Howard is the most versatile player for the Bears, rushing for 199 yards and receiving 40 yards. Glennon mixed in some nice throws while completing 21 of 33 passes for 218 yards and a score, but he threw two ugly interceptions.
The lone bright spot on offense for the Bears on Monday night was Kendall Wright. Adams was stretchered off the field, but was reportedly conscious and had feeling in all extremities, thankfully.
Trevathan was penalized but not ejected. Nelson and Cobb immediately waved the training staff onto the field. He picked off Chicago quarterback Mike Glennon on a second-and-15 snap from the Chicago 45-yard line. That gave Matthews his 75th career sack, breaking Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila’s mark of 74.5. After not scoring a touchdown through their first two games, Andy Dalton and company were a big surprise last week when they led the Packers most of the game at Lambeau Field before losing in overtime last weekend. The Bears have surprised critics so far with how they have been playing so far under third-year head coach John Fox, who has discovered ways to utilize the talent on his team.
“The American flag to me is symbolic of the freedom that is provided to us by the Constitution of the United States of America”, he said.
